  • Patent number: 8272929
    Abstract: Auto-Arranged Coin Stacker and Dispenser device that is capable of stacking and dispensing coins automatically in a row and columnar configuration inside chambers formed between a back panel and a front panel between which a space is created to accept coins to drop freely and sequentially from an opening at the top of the device. A spacer having substantially the thickness of the coins is configured to have guide posts wherein the dropping coins are directed automatically to advance downward and arrange themselves first horizontally then vertically in the space provided between the front and back panels. The subsequently falling coins form additional rows vertically above the previous rows in a well-ordered manner by gravity assist and judiciously spaced guides on the sides. The device presents the stacked coins through a translucent frontage to show an immediate accounting of what has been deposited with an aesthetic appearance to the viewer.
